The local real estate market is more active than it has been since 2005. In fact, each year has been more active than the previous year for six straight years. Further, each year has had fewer listings than the previous year. Did you know inventory is less than 7 months? Buyers are often surprised to find that inventory has dwindled to such a degree. Truthfully, the variable we struggle with the most is the lack of inventory. This lack of inventory has caused a revival of the new construction market.
So, you have decided you want to focus exclusively on homes. In Naples, you have many options. Much of Naples is gated and it is quite common to have all your lawn maintenance included in your HOA fee. Yes - that means mowing as well as mulching, weeding, trimming etc. Essentially, you can have a 'lock up and leave' mentality the same way you do with a condo. Of course, there are many things to consider such as waterfront, golf course, proximity to beaches, gated or non-gated, size of homes, amenities, lifestyle and more. Of course, one of our professional agents can help you narrow your search with a free (no obligation) consultation. We are quite good at this so don't do it alone.
When deciding condos buyers have many options. Buyers often start their search by focusing on types of communities rather than properties themselves. Of course, there are far more options to consider; garages, locations, security, lifestyle, age of community, amenities, golf and, of course, fees. Often times, when purchasing a condo you will notice your HOA fees may be higher than when purchasing a home (even in the same community). However, owners get more than they initially expected. Some examples include cable TV, structural insurance, and water/sewer.
It is our main priority to accomplish two things on this website: 1. Educate buyers and sellers, and 2. Equip our clients with the best tools utilizing the latest technology to help them in their Naples property search. Buyers should begin their search here because this site contains every property listed in the Naples MLS (multiple listing service). There is no need to scour the web when all properties are listed here with the newest and coolest tools to view listings including detailed property information, Google Maps and Street View, Bing Maps with Birds Eye Views and in-depth neighborhood information and Naples stats.
